Maureen's Marchers

Denver Metro Event

Support Maureen's Marchers as we walk to fight suicide in the Out of the Darkness Denver Metro Walk .

July 31, 2013 was the day that Moe died of suicide at the age of 22. She died of uncontrolled mental illness, experiencing severe depression, and was under a doctor's care for her condition. But we lost her anyway.

We support  AFSP's mission in helping people who are at risk overcome their lack of hope and help those who have been affected by suicide.

This is the eigth year Maureen's Marchers team is hitting the road in Moe's name on the annual Out of the Darkness Denver Metro Walk. The money raised in this event will go to fighting suicide and supporting AFSP's goal to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025.

The danger of suicide is especially high within the LGBTQ+ community. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is the second leading cause of death among youth aged 15 to 24 and the third leading cause of death among youth aged 10 to 14. Among youth who identify as sexual minorities, the likelihood of death by suicide has been estimated to be two to seven times greater than the likelihood of death by suicide among heterosexual youth. These kids need help, and it's up to us to provide it in any way we can.

Please help us honor our lost, beloved Moe and consider donating to the AFSP by clicking the "Donate" button on this page. All donations are 100% tax deductible and benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide. The AFSP is a Charity Navigator 3 star charity, and they spend 83.7% of their total budget on program expenses.
